  • Do I need to use a remote on a new Rockshox fork?

    I’ve got my eye on some cheap 2021 Rockshox Judy Gold, but (1) they come without the remote and (2) I don’t or need a bar-mounted control for them anyway (they’re for a rigid single speed)

    Can I just run them without the remote at all if I’m not bothered about locking them out? Or can I just turn the dial on the fork manually?

    I read that the older Rockshox forks defaulted to locked out without cable tension from the remote, but it seems like the newer ones are different?

    So the fork should have remote lock but isn’t supplied with the lever? If that’s the case you can always pop a cable straight into the stop on the crown, then twist the lockout knob manually and tighten the grub screw onto the cable. Effectively locking the fork open.

    That’s what I did with mine when the pushloc died.
